a kinship with ronald reagan when he tried to project a tougher line and ronald reagan won. >> rose: see, charlie, listen, it may work in this campaign. i don't really think so. because what's going on in the arab world today, across the arab world, is a war of ideas. there's a huge civil war across several different fronts going on there today. let's look at what they are. you've got, first of all, the shiite/sunni civil war going o most flagrantly and violently in syria. and it's very much playing out there. at the same time in syria you do have a certain democratic authoritarian overlay to that conflict. at the same time you have a war within islam between the salfy groups and the more mainstream-- in their context-- muslim brotherhood groups. that's what libya was about, that that's what the conflict in egypt was about when it exploded around our embassy. so to blame obama for an internal civil war inside either the arab world or islam i think that's a bit much. that's like blaming george w. bush for 9/11. well, some people do. some people say he had a warning he should have been pay
, ronald reagan was not engaged in every detail, he could have the stam no-- stamina to do t but obama is engaged in everything. and i do think there is a sense of fat agency that one senses around the white house and one senses around him. nd so to get the passion that he had in 2008, i think is just hard given everything he's been through. >> you think that explains, mark, partly what happened? >> it may well, judy. 48 hours later, first of all, just a personal note, i have speculated on debate night that the president's passive performance and it was quite passive, listless, may have been attributed in part to john kerry, his sparring partner in the prep sessions who is a leading contender to be secretary of state maybe not going tough toe-to-toe to him. my subsequent reporting has, in fact, contradicted that. john kerry, i was told by two eye witnesses was actually tougher inside than mitt romney was with barack obama. >> woodruff: so that's not it. >> no, i don't think that-- i do think what we concluded before, at least i heard several wise ople say, presidential debates don't ma
. >> it has never been done before. jack kennedy lowered tax rates, increased growth. ronald reagan... >> oh, now, you're jack kennedy. >> woodruff: abortion also figured as a key issue in the debate. both men are catholics, and they were asked to describe their position, based on their faith. >> i don't see how a person can separate their public life from their private life or from their faith. and i respect people who don't agree with me on this. but the policy of a romney administration will be to oppose abortion, with the exceptions for rape, incest, and life of the mother. >> life begins at conception. that's the church's judgment. i accept it in my personal life. i just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. i do not believe that we have a right to tell other people that wom, thy. theyan't control their body. it's a decision between them and their doctor, in my view. and the supreme court-- i'm not going to interfere with that. >> woodruff: biden warned a conservative supreme court majority would overturn a woman's right to choose. ryan, who's on recor
have-- do you know exactly what a you doin >lookat at a rom-- look at what ronald reagan and tip o'neill did. they worked together out of a framework to lower tax rates and broaden the base. and they worked together to fix that. what we are saying is, here's our framework. lower tax rates 20%. we raise about 1.2 trillion through income taxes. we forego about 1.1 trillion in loopholes and deductions. and so what we're saying is deny those loopholes and deductions to higher income taxpayers so more of their income is taxed, which has a broader base of taxation. >> can i translate. >> so we can lower tax rates across the brd. here ishy why i'm saying this. what we are saying. >> i hope i will get time to respond to this. >> will you get time. >> we want to work with congress on how best to achieve this. that means it successful. >> no specifics, then again. >> what we are saying is lower tax rates 20%, start with the wealthy. work with congress. >> you guarantee this math will add up. >> absolutely. six studies have guaranteed. six studies have verified that this math adds up. >> vice
, much wider. >> i remember ronald regan was quite positive about immigration. he was quite pro hispanic. he gave amnesty the 3 million. >> yes. republicans were doing great. as you kw, reagan used to say that latinos are republicans, they just don't know it. >> well, he did say that. he did say you have common values in regard to the family, to religion. >> abortion. >> abortion. issues on that. >> gay marriage. they're very conservative. that's basically what changed everything. i remember reading an article where president bush was asked what was one of his biggest regrets. he said, not passing immigration reform. as a republican and having a republican congress he could not convince his ownartyo support immigration reform. we focus only on the undocumented immigrants. i think that that's -- that that's what's happening, that when people perceive latinos, first thing that pops into their mind is immigrants and undocumented immigrants or like they say illegal aliens which is a term we don't like to use. they don't realize that 74% are americans, are citizens either by birth or naturali
